Brussels is the ultimate European city. It is an international metropolis - a mosaic of languages, cultures and traditions.

A typical Brussels city tour incorporates all the main sights of Brussels! The Grand Place, world famous Market Square, in the heart of medieval Brussels with its incomparable City Hall and precious Guild Houses (walking tour). The Galeries St Hubert, Cathedral of St Michel, Ilôt Sacré, Beer Tasting in a typical café, Manneken-Pis, the neo-classical Bourse and St Gery area. The Congress Column. Passing the Royal Residence, we see the Sablon district with countless antique dealers. This tour is totally custom so wherever you feel like staying longer. . . we stop and stroll.
I recommend you combine this tour with the Belgian flavours sampling lunch (tour #: 3065) (beer, cheese, ham, fries, chocolate and waffles for an extra 20€ per person).

A Recent Review of this tour

Joyce, thank you so much for an insightful tour of a wonderful city. My son an I learned so much beyond what the tourist-centric venues provide and your insider knowledge of the surrounding neighborhoods gave us a much better appreciation for what it means to be a Belgian in Brussels and beyond. For anyone considering this tour, I highly recommend it!
